Energy loss of alpha particles of energy 5.48 MeV [Am-241], has measured in Poly methyl methacrylate [PMMA] films at a pressure of 4.0-5.6 mbar. The experiment was carried out using the alpha ray spectrometer consisting of the Silicon Surface Barrier Detector. The alpha source and the detector were kept at a fixed distance of 16 mm in scattering chamber… (More)
